Blog adalah ...

Blog adalah kependekan dari Weblog, istilah yang pertama kali digunakan oleh Jorn Barger pada bulan Desember 1997. Jorn Barger menggunakan istilah Weblog untuk menyebut kelompok website pribadi yang selalu diupdate secara kontinyu dan berisi link-link ke website lain yang mereka anggap menarik disertai dengan komentar-komentar mereka sendiri. Blog kemudian berkembang mencari bentuk sesuai dengan kemauan para pembuatnya atau para Blogger. Blog yang pada mulanya merupakan “catatan perjalanan” seseorang di Internet, yaitu link ke website yang dikunjungi dan dianggap menarik, kemudian menjadi jauh lebih menarik daripada sebuah daftar link. Hal ini disebabkan karena para Blogger biasanya juga tidak lupa menyematkan komentar-komentar “cerdas” mereka, pendapat-pendapat pribadi dan bahkan mengekspresikan sarkasme mereka pada link yang mereka buat. Dari komentar-komentar tadi biasanya Blog kemudian menjadi jendela yang memungkinkan kita “mengintip” isi kepala dan kehidupan sehari-hari dari penciptanya.

Blog adalah cara mudah untuk mengenal kepribadian seseorang Blogger. Topik-topik apa yang dia sukai dan tidak dia sukai, apa yang dia pikirkan terhadap link-link yang dia pilih, apa tanggapannya pada suatu isu. Seluruhnya biasanya tergambar jelas dari Blog-nya. Karena itu Blog bersifat sangat personal. Roger Yim, seorang kolumnis San Francisco Gate pada artikelnya di Februari 2001, menuliskan bahwa sebuah Blog adalah persilangan antara diary seseorang dan daftar link di Internet. Sedang Scott Rosenberg dalam kolomnya di majalah online Salon pada May 1999 menyimpulkan bahwa Blog berada pada batasan website yang lebih bernyawa daripada sekedar kumpulan link tapi kurang instrospektif dari sekedar sebuah diary yang disimpan di internet.

Perkembangan lain dari Blog yaitu ketika kemudian Blog bahkan tidak lagi memuat link-link tapi hanya berupa tulisan tentang apa yang seorang Blogger pikirkan, rasakan, hingga apa yang dia lakukan sehari-hari. Blog kemudian juga menjadi Diary Online yang berada di Internet. Satu-satunya hal yang membedakan Blog dari Diary atau Jurnal yang biasa kita miliki adalah bahwa Blog dibuat untuk dibaca orang lain. Para Blogger dengan sengaja mendesain Blog-nya dan isinya untuk dinikmati orang lain. [Enda nasution]
